Hi everybody! I was notified that it's been a while since I've updated this, so I need to change it! Last time I was on here, I was working in the electronics section of Wal-Mart. Now I've gone on to pursue my dreams of being a teacher. I am currently a substitute teacher, and I tutor on the side. Every day I learn new things, and I continue to take steps closer to getting my own classroom!
In the past year, I visited Australia. I visited family, pet the koalas and wallabies, saw the Opera House, and went to some beautiful beaches. I hope I can do more international traveling... that was an awesome experience :)
I got re-hired at Wal-Mart!! I am so excited! I am going to be working in the Connections Center, which means I'll be selling phones and working some in the Electronics department too. I have never done that before, so it will be neat to learn something new! I took the drug test yesterday, so I should be starting sometime this week... my boss said she will call me and tell me when Orientation is. I am so happy that God has given me this blessing!
How was everyone's Christmases? Mine was wonderful! We had a total of three Christmas parties at our house. I went to a Christmas party at Kari's
house, and I went to the annual Lester family Christmas Eve dinner at my grandparents' house. For Christmas I got a digital frame, which is totally awesome! Yesterday I went with my family up to Brooksville and went hiking. Today I did some job hunting. I decided that while I am still unemployed, I am going to fill my time with pursuing three goals. I'm going to post these three goals up here for you guys to hold me accountable to. When I finally get a job, you all have to ask me if I met my goals.
1) Sort through some boxes in my room that I still haven't unpacked from FC.
2) Finish reading the New Testament. (I'm a really slow reader, so you guys need to push me!)
3) Brush up on my Spanish. (I hope to become fluent someday.)
Hope everyone has a happy New Year!!!
Sorry I have not posted in four months! This has been a crazy semester, and it is finally over! Today was the last day of my internship, and now I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education! I had a kindergarten class full of perfect children, whom I didn't want to leave. However, I am glad I am done with all that work. I am really excited to go job hunting and hopefully start getting some paychecks soon!
Summer is almost over, and this was one of the best summers I have ever had! I got to relax, travel, work, and turn 22 years old! I worked at Wal-Mart as a cashier (like I do every summer), and Thursday is my last day doing that. I traveled to Hawaii, Indiana, and Georgia. August 11th was my birthday; this was during our trip to Georgia to see my dad. While in Georgia, we went to a little German town called Helen and went tubing down the Chattahoochee River. Although this was an amazing summer, I'm ready for school to start! This will be my final semester of college, and I will be interning in a kindergarten classroom. I am looking forward to being around such cute little ones and helping them get used to being at school.
